The Scoop: Lux started the About Life and Love blog to reach out to singles and couples everywhere and let them know they’re not alone. Her articles touch on matters of the heart with a refreshing honesty and sense of humor. Whether she’s recommending a date-worthy shade of lipstick or giving wedding planning tips, Lux delivers down-to-earth guidance based on her own experiences navigating the dating scene.
Lifestyle blogger Lux Ganzon started blogging as a hobby in her early 20s. She originally called her blog Lux Thinking Aloud — because that’s what it was. She wrote about things that interested her, and she was surprised to find her musings interested a lot of other people, too.
Lux’s unfiltered ramblings drew an audience of singles who found comfort in knowing they weren’t the only ones feeling lost, confused, or frustrated in matters of the heart.
Anonymous readers began commenting on Lux’s blog posts and sending private messages saying they had learned something about themselves or their lives thanks to her thoughtful diatribes. That positive feedback motivated her to take her writing more seriously.
“It’s then that I realized my mission in life,” she told us. “I’m here to share not just my gift of writing but also to make others feel that they are not alone in their journeys.”
Thus, About Life and Love was born. This blog has served as Lux’s way of making sense of life and love, delivering nuggets of wisdom and humor with each post. Over the last 10 years, Lux has shared her experiences and takeaways as an actively dating single and now she offers her testimonial as a married woman.
No matter what stage of life’s she’s in, Lux relies on her joyful spirit to steer her in the right direction, and that has served as a guiding light for many About Life and Love readers as well.
“I write as a wounded healer showing my scars to others and letting them know that there is always hope,” she said.
Lux Ganzon Shares Her Dating Experiences & Travels
Lux describes herself as “a pharmacist by profession, but a writer at heart.” She helps people treat physical aches and pains during the day, and she addresses their emotional aches and pains in her free time. She offers words of healing and comfort while also recommending practical steps people can take to better their lives.
About once a month, Lux puts out another article relating her thoughts on love and life. She draws from her own experiences in many articles and gives her honest opinion without restraint. She takes her blog seriously and does her homework to ensure she can speak with authority on a variety of lifestyle topics.
About Life and Love covers a wide range of subject matter, so one day Lux may share her get-psyched-before-a-date playlist and the next she may suggest gift ideas for couples celebrating birthdays or anniversaries. Her universal advice has garnered a universal audience with people tuning in from the U.S., the Philippines, Russia, India, and the U.K.
When it comes to topics for her blog, everything Lux has experienced is up for grabs. She discusses her travels, love life, work, and friendships in a forthright and reflective tone.
Lux said articles with life lessons seem to resonate the best with her readers, and she enjoys seeing her articles spark dynamic discussions in the comments section. Many singles find solace in hearing about others’ experiences in the dating world, and it helps them to see a strong woman out there making it work.
Lux’s transformation from single gal to happily married woman is inspirational for daters hoping to find their own happily-ever after endings.
“When I was going through some hardships, that’s where I get my inspiration,” she explained. “I write with my blood, so to speak. I write from personal experiences and with faith. I’m writing to encourage myself as well as others. Whenever I write, I feel much lighter and better.”
Offering Truthful Reviews on Lifestyle Products
Honesty has been part of Lux’s brand since the beginning, and she makes sure to stay true to herself and her values with every new post. She often features products or services in her posts these days, but she’s truthful in every review and only recommends things she thinks could be useful to her audience.
Lux said her readers can expect many wedding-themed posts in the coming months as she shares her experience planning a wedding. She’ll post tips for brides and grooms as well as review her suppliers and share lessons learned along the way.
Right now, Lux is riding one of her highest highs as a newlywed, but she has no illusions that falling in love has solved all her problems. She still remembers the frustrations of dating, and she still experiences emotional challenges that make her want to write her heart out. Lux said she still has plenty of room to grow, and she hopes her readers will grow alongside her.
“I don’t pretend that I’ve got everything figured out or that I have a perfect life,” she told us. “So, when people visit my blog, they see reality and learn from me.”
Though Lux doesn’t shy away from life’s darker topics — including where to find condolence wreaths — she aims to always end on a positive note in her articles. She’s a natural-born optimist, so she can’t help but look at the silver lining and remind her readers to have hope.
Readers Appreciate the Heartfelt Writing Style
When Lux started blogging, she didn’t realize how big an undertaking it would become. She didn’t know that she’d grow so passionate about sharing her insights on love and life. And she didn’t know how big an impact it would have on everyday people’s lives.
“I applaud you for giving space to your thoughts, for laying open your heart, for just expressing how you felt,” commented one reader. “That’s courage, girl!”
Lux told us it means a lot to her to know that her words are out there encouraging others to put themselves out there and find love and joy in their lives. She relates to her readers because she was once in their shoes.
“When I was in my darkest moments, I was searching for inspiration online,” she said. “I will always be thankful for those influencers for saving me even without them knowing. In the same way, I feel grateful knowing that I can give the same encouragement to others who are in the same situation.”
The online world can be a toxic and negative place, but Lux has carved out a positive corner and welcomes people to join her in looking on the bright side and coming up with solutions rather than complaints.
Lux said the uplifting feedback she receives from her readers motivates her to keep up with her passion project. She has become a proud member of the blogosphere, and her mission to inform, amuse, console, and mentor her audience continues to take shape and gain momentum.
“I’m happy every time I receive random messages or comments telling me how much I’ve helped them with what they’re going through,” she said. “I’ve also gained friends online from blogging. I’m proud to have been featured on some blogs or be recognized by my fellow bloggers.”
A Joyful Journey Learning About Life & Love
Lux has come a long way in the last decade, and her blog reflects the dynamic progress she’s made. As she gained experience and understanding, About Life and Love has evolved from an unfiltered public diary to a more polished and thoughtful publication.
The blog now offers guidance on everything from what to wear on a first date to where to travel on a romantic getaway. It has helped readers with its encouraging, cutesy, and values-driven advice, and Lux continues to expand her knowledge base one post at a time.
As Lux said, “From a lost and emotional 20-something ranting about heartbreaks online and using simple free blogger templates, I’m proud to say that I’ve come a long way as a lifestyle blogger — despite not being a techie myself.”
